AMERICA WEST AIRLINES ANNOUNCES NEW FLIGHTFUND PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WITH RADISSON HOTELS

 PHOENIX, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- America West Airlines (NASDAQ: AWAQC) announced a new frequent flyer program partnership agreement with Radisson Hotels International, effective Jan. 1, 1993. Members of America West's popular frequent flyer program, FlightFund, will receive 500 miles for qualifying stays at participating Radisson locations. However, during the "Radisson Triple Hotel Bonus Miles" promotion, FlightFund members will receive triple mileage -- 1,500 miles -- for qualifying hotel stays through March 31, 1993.
 "Our new travel partnership with Radisson Hotels International strengthens our program by offering our members even more choices of hotel properties throughout our route network at an excellent travel value," said Rose Ceglia, America West's director of frequent traveler marketing. "We believe the addition of Radisson improves our competitive position and enhances our FlightFund program overall."
 Ceglia noted that America West's FlightFund partners now include Aeromexico, Air France, Northwest Airlines, Doubletree and Doubletree Club Hotels, Hilton and Conrad Hotels, Radisson Hotels International, Westin Hotels & Resorts, Budget Rent a Car and Thrifty Car Rental.
 "As a leader within the hospitality industry, we understand the benefit of working cooperatively with our travel partners to provide value-added consumer promotions that are consistent with established corporate travel policies," said Thomas Storey, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Radisson. "As Radisson continues to expand its worldwide organization, we are focusing on marketing leadership with aggressive and innovative consumer programs." Story added that the Radisson Triple Hotel Bonus Miles program was designed to be an additional meaningful benefit to one of the company's most important markets, the frequent business traveler.
 Minneapolis-based Radisson Hotels International operates, manages and franchises deluxe plaza hotels, suite hotels, hotels, inns and resorts at more than 290 locations in 25 countries around the world.
 FlightFund membership is free, and new members will receive a special 2,500-mile bonus just for enrolling. Travelers may enroll as a FlightFund member at any America West ticket counter or by calling the FlightFund Service Center at 800-247-5691.
